Many Enserva members work closely with Indigenous neighbours, partners and colleagues. As a voice for the energy services industry, Enserva continually looks for opportunities for our members to learn more about developing meaningful and equitable relationships with Indigenous groups.
Enserva representatives and our members are on a journey to learn more about Truth and Reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in Canada, and to understand how to respectfully move forward.
As part of our responsibility in reconciliation, we are working towards our own call to action in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report. As outlined in the report, call to action 92 requests that, “we call upon the corporate sector in Canada to adopt the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a reconciliation framework and to apply its principles, norms, and standards to corporate policy and core operational activities involving Indigenous peoples and their lands and resources.” At Enserva, we are committed to learning, listening, and understanding. We are also committed to implementing the TRC’s calls to action in our internal policies, on our councils, and in our external work, and together with our members continue on this journey of reconciliation and healing.
Enserva is incredibly grateful to our many Indigenous partners. Canada’s energy services, supply and manufacturing sector is committed to building our relationships with Indigenous communities in the spirit of reconciliation, collaboration and healing. We join them in collectively coming together to reflect on and recognize this terrible stain on our country’s history and move forward in reconciliation.
